Hey there! I’m Jake, and capturing love stories is what I live for. As a local Geelong wedding photographer, I’ve had the incredible privilege of immortalising some of the most heartfelt moments for couples all along the breathtaking Great Ocean Road. Whether it’s the intimate elopements or the grand celebrations, each wedding is a unique adventure, and I’m here to tell your love story through my lens.
My connection to Geelong isn’t just professional, it’s personal. This region, with its stunning coastlines and vibrant communities, holds a special place in my heart. It’s where I’ve honed my craft, understanding every hidden gem and picturesque spot that makes each wedding photo uniquely beautiful.
So, why should you consider a local like me for your big day? It’s simple. I know the light, the locations, and the little nuances of this place like the back of my hand. But more than that, I’ve got stories to tell – stories of love, laughter, and those unplanned, candid moments that make your wedding genuinely yours.
When it comes to your wedding day, every detail counts, especially your choice of photographer. Going local is more than a practical decision; it’s about creating a connection with someone who truly understands the essence of Geelong and The Great Ocean Road.
My wife and I shot a wedding last year at Loch Ard Gorge near the Twelve Apostles. The couple was adventurous, and they wanted their love captured against the dramatic backdrop of the sunset. As a local, I knew exactly the right time to capture the golden light, creating moments that were nothing short of magical.
Then there was this intimate beach wedding near Bells Beach. The day was overcast, and the couple worried about the photos. But I knew how the Geelong weather plays out. We waited just a bit, and the sky cleared to reveal the most spectacular sunset, perfect for their once-in-a-lifetime shots.
My photography style? It’s a mix of candid moments and crafted shots, all woven together to tell your story. I believe in capturing the raw, unfiltered emotions – the teary-eyed laughter, the soft glances, and the wild dance moves. That’s what makes each wedding unique.
But it’s not just about the style. It’s about understanding you. Before the big day, I love to sit down with my couples, maybe over a coffee in a cozy Geelong café, and really get to know what makes them tick. This way, when I’m behind the camera, I’m not just a photographer; I’m a storyteller, narrating your love story through my lens.
Now, let me take you through a couple of my favourite weddings I’ve gotten to photograph. Here are some special moments from my portfolio, each with its own story and charm.
The Cliffside Elopement: In this shot, you’ll see a couple, in each others arms, against the rugged cliffs of The Great Ocean Road. The way they hold each other, you can feel the intensity of their love. This day, with the wild ocean as a backdrop, is one of my favourites. It captures the essence of what it means to elope – just two people and their unbreakable bond, against the vastness of nature. I would kill to relive this day, it was unreal.
The Homestead Fiesta in Teesdale: This wedding was all about fun and festivity. With a gorgeous couple, an incredible bridal party and all set at the beautiful Woolbrook Homestead near Geelong, the photo showcases the couple surrounded by friends and family, all immersed in celebration and confetti. The night was full of laughter, dancing, twinkling lights – every element told a story of joy and togetherness.
But don’t just take my word for it. Here’s what some of the amazing wedding couples I’ve worked with have to say:
“Jake is a uniquely passionate photographer and he was an essential part of our wedding. His eye for detail and ability to capture the most genuine moments was beyond our expectations. We’re so grateful for the memories he’s given us.” – Sarah and Tom
“From the first meeting to the final album, Jake made us feel completely at ease. His artistry, his use of light and his knowledge of Geelong’s hidden gems made our photos from our wedding uniquely beautiful.” – Emily and Liam
